Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage In South Africa Attacked By Poachers, Is Now Protected!
WAN recently shared a heartbreaking message from Allison Thomson of Outraged South African Citizens Against Poaching (OSCAP) that the Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, was attacked by poachers, tragically leaving several rhinos dead, care-givers severely beaten, and one young woman sexually assaulted.
An Indiegogo fundraising campaign was launched by an orphanage volunteer, Megan Richards, with a goal of reaching $55,000 USD, which would enable them to keep the remaining baby rhinos safe for one year.
WAN and Peace 4 Animals donated the final amount that the campaign needed to reach the orphanage’s goal of 55k. The baby rhinos are now safe for the year!
Peace 4 Animals Sponsors Animal Aid USA’s Cat Rescue In Georgia
Peace 4 Animals sponsors the brand new Cat Rescue & Sanctuary at Animal Aid USA’s new center in Georgia.
The grand opening of the center was a huge success and brought roughly 500 dogs and cats who had been rescued from across the country, with the help of 150 volunteers, 25 transport vehicles and 15 airplanes, which flew them to the sanctuary!
After learning about the documentary “The Last Pig” which follows the life of a pig farmer who grapples with death, searches for compassion, and finally finds the courage to change, we were inspired to help.
Nellie’s rough patch began after she was shot twice by poachers in 2016. Miraculously she survived, and while being treated for her wounds, she was found to be pregnant. Nellie was soon sold by her owner who no longer wanted to keep rhinos on his farm after fearing more poaching attacks. She was moved to a new farm, but sadly had not taken well to her new environment; so much so that she had developed a deep depression, possibly PTSD, which was causing stomach ulcers.
